Built in Northern Italy by Fratelli Marchisio S.P.A., one of the world's leading manufacturers of both hobby and professional equipment for winemaking, olive oil processing, and other food preservation. They manufacture equipment reliably with long experience in their use, and at competitive prices. For the home hobbyist, they can be relied on for all the heavy equipment and storage tanks needed in your winery, without breaking the bank. At The Beverage People, we feel a particular kinship with this company. After all, our wine industry in Sonoma and Napa Counties is largely the byproduct of the Italian emigrants of the mid-nineteenth century and their knowledge of grapes and wine. We are happy that the winemaking connections from Italy to California continue today.

To operate the grape crusher destemmer:
As the grapes are fed into the hopper on top, a stainless steel auger moves them to the crusher rollers. As the grapes, along with the stems, drop through the rollers, the fall below where the destemmer basket is located. Thought the middle of the destemming basket is installed another auger with destemmer paddles which moves the stems in the opposite direction of the hopper auger. The basket has holes that allow the grapes to pass through, but not the large stems. The crushed grapes will drop straight out from under the crusher rollers, while the stems will drop out from the opposite end of the unit, where the destemmer cage ends.
We stock a companion stand that may be paired with the grape destemmer crusher. Also, some winemaker will mount the unit on sawhorses, or even directly on top of a sturdy fermentor such as our 32 gallon heavy plastic buckets.
